SATURDAY 18 APRIL
Hildegard Lernt Fliegen
Sweden’s Black Dough mix Peter Brötzman-like skronk jazz with a punk-rock energy & aesthetic, creating a sound that is immersive and open.
From Dublin, we have quintet Umbra – the mature, cohesive writing from band leader guitarist Chris Guilfoyle combines the rich harmonic world of contemporary jazz and the cyclical grooves of the likes of Meshuggah and Aphex Twin.
Swiss über-jazz group Hildegard Lernt Fliegen is a rare thing – very high level players and excellent writing, but also a great sense of fun and desire to entertain. Led by vocalist Andreas Schaerer – a vaudevillian front man who beguiles his audience with vocal gymnastics including beatboxing and incredible instrument mimicry, topped off with his undeniable stage presence.

We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…Read More

Who “gets” access to cultural and creative spaces? What happens to a “programme” when no rules apply? How does a building and an organisation inform the art it facilitates/creates/presents and how does that art, in turn, impact it? What questions are artists asking and how can a cultural organisation help artists explore potential answers? Future Forecast is a multiway transmission with 2020+ vision. In the future, everyone is an artist, everyone is the audience, and everyone is invited. Una Mullally This summer, Project Arts Centre was going to present Future Forecast, a series of events and artistic interventions forming…Read More
